When Qin Nan arrived at the Void Heaven Realm, he activated the seal immediately. It summoned a formidable force from the rift which encapsulated him before he vanished into thin air.
Some time later, Qin Nan found himself in an unfamiliar world. An aura different from the Nine Heavens Immortal Realm surrounded him.
Qin Nan sensed a Nine Heavens Supreme in the Greater Success Stage and two Nine Heavens Supremes in the early stage in the middle of a battle nearby.
He also felt something with a unique presence below him.
Qin Nan soon landed on the ground. He immediately glanced ahead.
He found himself on top of an ancient mountain. A tree over seventy zhang tall was around a hundred zhang away from him.
The tree had a golden trunk and countless purple leaves. Its size was not particularly huge, yet its aura was shocking. It was as immeasurable as the sea.
In addition to it, two young men and a woman were some distance away.
The woman was emitting a mystical glow. She was a Nine Heavens Supreme from the Tribe of Immortal Spirits. As for the other two young men, one was engulfed in black flames, a Nine Heavens Supreme from the Nongyan Tribe. The other man was not displaying his power, thus Qin Nan was unable to tell his background.
When Qin Nan looked at them, the three were looking back at him with astonishment too. However, the astonishment in their eyes soon dissipated.
The places where cultivators would arrive at when they were teleported into the Dao Seeking Land were randomized. A few thousand years ago, three Peerless Rulers and a Nine Heavens Supreme ended up in the middle of a battle between peak Nine Heavens Supremes. They were killed before they even collected their thoughts.
"Cultivator, hurry up and claim the Tree of Five Mysteries. Give it to us later, and we will give you great benefits in return," the Nine Heavens Supreme of the Nongyan Tribe immediately transmitted his voice.
"Cultivator, take the Tree of Five Mysteries. I will keep you safe. Once I dealt with them, I'll reward you greatly," the Nine Heavens Supreme of the Tribe of Immortal Spirits too transmitted her voice.
Qin Nan immediately realized what was going on.
The Nine Heavens Supreme of the Tribe of Immortal Spirits was in the Greater Success Stage, thus the Nine Heavens Supreme of the Nongyan Tribe had joined hands with another Nine Heavens Supreme to compete for the Tree of Five Mysteries.
Both sides were currently in a standoff.
To their surprise, a cultivator who just entered the Dao-Seeking Land ended up right beside the Tree of Five Mysteries.
"This Tree of Five Mysteries is an Immortal Blessing resource. It contains a special power which is extremely beneficial to those who were trying to master the Dao Realm. I'm in luck."
Qin Nan immediately claimed the Tree of Five Mysteries.
The Princess and Bilan would soon come to the Dao Seeking Land. If they failed to perfect the Dao Realm with the Fruits of the Heavens and Earth, he could give them the Tree of Five Mysteries.
"I'm sorry, this Tree of Five Mysteries is now mine," Qin Nan said with a smile.
"Mm...What did you just say?"
The three Nine Heavens Supremes were just about to nod as they assumed Qin Nan had agreed to their suggestion. However, they were startled after hearing his words.
Was he trying to claim the Tree of Five Mysteries to himself?
"As the saying goes, a wise man submits to circumstances! The Tree of Five Mysteries isn't something you can claim for yourself!" the woman of the Tribe of Immortal Spirits said.
The man had just arrived in the Dao Seeking Land. He was most likely just a Nine Heavens Supreme in the early stage.
If the man was still stubborn, the three of them could team up and leave him with serious injuries even if they failed to kill him!
Qin Nan shrugged as if it was never his concern.
The woman's eyes turned cold.
"HAHAHA, how interesting, we've been fighting for half a day, but someone who just came is trying to claim the Tree of Five Mysteries!" the Nine Heavens Supreme of the Nongyan Tribe burst out laughing.
The surroundings began to shake vigorously as he unleashed a formidable aura.
He soon withdrew the smile on his face and said coldly, "If that's the case, maybe we should kill him first before we continue to compete for the Tree of Five Mysteries!"
The woman nodded in agreement. She shoved her hand forward.
A formidable energy immediately turned into shadows of ancient weapons. They poured down at Qin Nan like a fierce storm.
The other two Nine Heavens Supremes made their moves too. Black flames burst out of one's body and transformed into ferocious dragons. The other swung his arm like a sword and unleashed sword intents.
These three were weaker than Supreme Pingling and the others whom Qin Nan had stumbled into previously.
Qin Nan retained his calm expression. He grinned and dodged the three attacks by leaving an afterimage behind while he moved to the side.
"Such an incredible speed!" the three Nine Heavens Supremes were startled.
"No wonder he dares to claim the Tree of Five Mysteries. He does have some tricks up in his sleeves. However, does he think being quick alone is enough to defeat us?"
The three Nine Heavens Supremes grinned coldly.
As they were about to make their moves, Qin Nan suddenly frowned as he sensed the Illusionary Immortal Mask on his face cracking apart.
The Illusionary Immortal Mask broke into pieces.
Qin Nan reclaimed his true appearance. His blue-red hair drifted in the wind.
Fifteen days had passed since he put on the mask. It had reached its limit.
"Kid, I shall teach you how cruel things are in the Dao Seeking Land..."
The two young men performed hand seals to execute their moves. However, they paused in the middle of the sentence and widened their eyes when they saw Qin Nan's true appearance.
They found his face too familiar!
The woman of the Tribe of Immortal Spirits opened her eyes wide too. She was struggling to believe her eyes.
Even though she already knew Qin Nan would come to the Dao Seeking Land, she did not expect to stumble into him!
"Oh? You know who I am?" Qin Nan squinted.
"We have to go now!"
The woman and the two young men quickly collected their thoughts. Their expressions shifted greatly as they executed forbidden arts and consumed talismans to flee for their lives without any hesitation.
